Example text

Toynbee Il mondo ellenico C. i successori di Alessandro portarono l’Ellenismo fino al bacino del Jumna e del Gange, nel regno dei monsoni; nell’ultimo secolo avanti Cristo i Romani lo portarono sulla sponda atlantica dell’Europa, nel regno della corrente del Golfo. In questa espansione verso sud-est e nord-ovest per via di terra, le città-stato elleniche si stabilirono saldamente in ambienti anche piú esotici della gelata Boristene sul Dnepr o della riarsa Naucrati sul Nilo. Dura-Europo si trovava sulle rive dell’Eufrate in un tratto del fiume dov’esso scorre attraverso la steppa dell’Arabia settentrionale.

Nel sistema di vita barbarico del periodo di anarchia postminoico e preellenico, le donne e gli schiavi avevano fatto parte della società, come possiamo desumere dalla lettura dell’Odissea. La vita che si viveva in una città-stato ellenica durante e dopo l’viii secolo a. C. rappresentava un grande passo avanti nel cammino della civiltà, ma da questo progredire le donne e gli schiavi erano stati esclusi. L’ambiente sociale della città-stato aveva dato agli uomini nuovo interesse e gusto per la vita in cosí larga misura, che le madri, le mogli, le sorelle, non erano piú le loro uguali sul piano intellettuale.

Aristotele prescrive che il corpo dei cittadini non debba essere troppo numeroso, ma tale che un «annunciatore senza megafono» («kéryx mè stentóreios») possa farsi udire dall’intera assemblea; e, per la verità storica, poche città-stato elleniche – forse soltanto Atene, Siracusa, Akragas e infine Roma – ebbero una cittadinanza che sorpassasse i limiti aristotelici. Sparta non faceva eccezione alla regola, perché, sebbene dopo la conquista di Messene il territorio da lei occupato coprisse circa due quinti della superficie del Peloponneso, tutta la popolazione, tolta una piccola parte, era formata da perieci ed iloti.
